"Stanley Jack"

  Re: (...)
That's all the auction listing said about this lot, It looked like a very rusty 604 and i was worried it might be pitted. I figured what the hell, I would put in a low bid and worst case scenario have some parts for the boneyard. (These are their pic's not mine.)







I knew once I opened the box it wasn't a 604 but it took awhile to get through the rust to expose the 604 1/2 in the corner! I had to strip off all the japanning and give it a long bath in Evapo-Rust, but I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of pitting. Just some small spots on the lever cap and some shallow pitting on the face of the blade (which I might swap out for an as yet purchased Hock). After pic's below with the obligatory fluffy shavings.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot the best part! $12.00 for the plane, $9.50 for the shipping for a grand total of, $21.50!







ps. I did replace the knob. It was functional but chipped at the base and I had a few laying about.

Thanks for looking!
Tom.

Nice job. What did you use to replace the japanning?

You got ripped. That's not a jack. I'll give you $25 and shipping and you can keep looking.

Common decency is as rare as common sense. I figure there was only a finite amount of both made and its getting shared out among too many folks.

Always nice to see an old tool restored. You certainly did a fine job and the shavings look nice.
